I have probably eaten here many many times over the years and I have never reviewed it. It's a very small family run restaurant with very excellent Italian food. My favorite is the chicken piccata. This time my friend had scallops piccata, eggplant Parmesan, chicken...More

The staff are passionate about the service and sharing information about the food. I enjoyed the family like atmosphere and the desserts are made in house. Yum!!

Franco's has a great menu, very good service and moderate prices. The choices are Italian but there are lots of them plus interesting specials. A small place but very friendly and welcoming. They do have a bar or you can bring your own wine

This place is walking distance near a friend's house, so that's what we did for dinner...disappointing as the food was $$$ for what we got. Portion sizes were meh, I could've went to the Olive Garden and got the never ending pasta bowl for less....More

Our Son loves the place and took us there, but we were highly disappointed in the food at Franco's. Atmosphere was nice and the service was acceptable but the food was not all that good. Sorry, but I would not recommend Franco's to anyone.

From what I've read in the newspaper, this is a stand alone restaurant. This Franco came to Califotnia from Florida, where he had a French restaurant.
